Got a chance at a sneak peek of tomorrow's Supersonic show earlier this afternoon.

The showing from The VACVVM is strong. Great work all around! The Ruas is pretty astounding in person.

Apologies for the fudge photos, I was rushed and only had my cell phone. The KT is especially bad - it was impossible to capture without a reflection.

Damn! That's awesome. Thanks for the photos. Did you end up snagging any OGs from the show?

No, I was extremely tempted but it's not the right time for me to snag one.

It is! The silver metallic background is incredible. It is very reminiscent of the gold metallic used on his Bokor print.

The two would look insane facing one another.

The show was aweosme. I was super impressed with all the artists. Picked up a KT print and chatted it up with the gallery owner (also Ken) for a minute. They had the stack of prints right there so I picked through them for #2/xxx. Definitely worth it.

As a house-warming gift to the Becketts, Aaron sent them this Graveyard print with incredible remarque. (Also this insanely cool shipping label!)

I really like this. looks like an ax sticking out of the animal (deer or wolf?), must have been a good fight if it was with an ax, since its not really a close quarter weapon like a knife or long range like bow.
